Trump's dirty little secret...

...he might just not be a racist or sexist after all. But don't tell that to Hillary.

I understand that 2016 is the season of political info wars. Republicans and Democrats and their respective Super PACs are posting video endorsements right and left on Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, and so many more social media channels. That's to be expected.

You may not be in love with, fully committed to or always agree with Donald Trump, and that's okay. But just think of the alternative. I shudder just thinking about four to eight more years of the same.

And as someone who now has unabashedly jumped head-on into info-war mode, I ask that you take the time to watch the following video and review Trump's position on issues because the facts — love him or hate him — really do matter.

Donald Trump Reveals...

Recently, a colleague forwarded the following QPolitical story on Trump and I thought it well worth sharing and posting to my sorely neglected blog.

It's been almost 12 months since I posted on the 2016 election and for that, I do profusely apologize. But, with the Indiana primary just a few days away, this feature story seemed not only timely but also seems to provide evidence of why Trump continues to befuddle so many of today's political pundits.

As luck would have it, I met Carly Fiorina

As luck would have it, just a few weeks after posting my last blog post about Carly Fiorina, a few exciting things happened to me.

First, and on a whim, I pitched my writing skills to Politichicks.com CEO/editor-in-chief Ann-Marie Murrell (a lovely person and very encouraging BTW). And guess what? She asked me to start blogging for Politichicks.com on a regular basis. I was thrilled to say the least for many reasons including some fantastic press access.

I do love my own little Elephant Under Glass blog (even though I do ignore it at times due to life) but having a larger monthly viewer base doesn't stink either. Don't worry, I plan to post my Politichicks.com stories to this blog too.

Even better as a Politichicks.com contributor, I am able to blog about just about any topic I feel like as long as it has national and/or political merit, and Politichicks.com readers find it interesting.

As luck and a little networking would have it, I was invited to attend the Salt Lake County GOP fundraiser and VIP reception about a week ago and guess who was the event headliner?! Carly Fiorina!

It was a thrill to finally meet Carly and get a few pix with her and even cooler, I used this event as my inaugural blog post for Politichicks.com.

A Woman in the White House



I received an email invite from a friend who leans liberal. She's a great lady, creative and smart. The subject of the email: We need a woman in the White House. It was a fundraiser invite for a local, female candidate and her subject line plug included needing a woman in the White House. Her email made me think.

On every level, I agree. It's about time. I would love to see a woman in the White House. Just not Hillary Clinton.

American's deserve better, so much better.

We've endured almost eight years of the Obama admin. with scandals abound. In my opinion, Americans are tired of it no matter their party affiliation. I know I am.

While I would love to see a woman in the White House in my lifetime, I remain discerning about that woman. It's not enough to have just any woman in the White House, we need a quality woman. Someone who embodies the intellect, street smarts, compassion and ability to stand strong against the alluring addiction of political power.

I've spent that last five years working on political campaigns of people I admire and respect. Some have lost and some have won. The difference between these people and many others who run for elected office is a strong character and a clarity between right and wrong. This matters.

Hillary and Bill may have several non-profit foundations which take money from countries across the world. And, some of them may really help improve communities and various cultures. But at the end of the day, they've done so much more "wrong," I am stunned that anyone would be willing to blindly cast a vote for her regardless of how much they want a woman in office.

As a woman who would love to see another woman in the Oval Office, I know I won't be casting my vote for her.

And, it looks like GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina won't be either. Take a second to read the recent Hill story where Fiorina candidly shares her view on the former Secretary of State's lack of leadership on the home front and globally, and the inherent lack of trust most Americans have for Mrs. Clinton. God love the recent email scandal - just hoping the GOP lineup is able to seriously call Hillary out and expose her for what she is and has become.

Carly Fiorina tells it like it is in The Hill story

Keep an eye out for Carly. She may not be the GOP winner next year but this lady elephant certainly believes Fiorina is worth watching and learning more about over the next several months.

April 24, 2015 | 100th Anniversary of the Armenian Genocide

This is an incredibly important issue to me and my family as I am Armenian. For anyone who knows about this ugly mar in history, they know how many American Armenians were impacted, how many family members were lost and/or orphaned, and they know how inherently strong the Armenians are as a culture. While I am not the most active of my family members across Armenian orgs/causes, I do have a deep appreciation and understanding of what my ancestors (both grandmothers) went through in the early 1900s and thank them each day for the strength they've instilled in me over the years. #ArmenianGenocide100 #TurkeyFailed
